What to add to the carnage and vitriol from yesterday?
Aside from the murders themselves, if you are not on Twitter, you missed some interesting back and forth between the different political spectrums.
Well, first, you had the President of the United States immediately try to use the Islamic terrorism as a call for “common sense gun safety laws”.
Oh, but that was when he thought this was more “workplace violence”.
And then the Leftist Twitterati decided (all at once…hmm) that if you state that your “thoughts and prayers” were with those affected by the murders, this was “hypocritical” or “not enough” or some such.
One person followed up noting,
We now live in a society where sending a heartfelt prayer to a victim is the target of insults and pejoratives. We live in a sad world.

I’d hate all these prayers too if my God was government. — David Harsanyi (@davidharsanyi) December 3, 2015
Indeed, one Twitterer from “ThinkProgress” (my what a grand name!) called out Nebraska Senator Deb Fischer for taking campaign contributions from the NRA:
Got $1,651 from NRA during the 2012 election cycle. Unlikely to address gun problem beyond “heartbreaking” tweet https://t.co/uhfsiBmegm

Because didn’tcha know that Senator Fischer bases her votes on who gave her sixteen hundred dollars?
But too bad the Islamic terrorist parents, who left off their infant child for a suicide mission while wearing GoPros to film it all, sort of spoiled the Left’s super-good theme here.
My thoughts and prayers are with them that they gain wisdom and knowledge.
Speaking of Senator Fischer, lost in all of the terrorism news was that her MAJOR highway bill looks to be passed very soon.
Oh good. The Lincoln porn guy will run for Lincoln City Council…in 2017.
